Prayer for August 24, 2020: Please pray with me. God who shows up, open our eyes to see you. You show up when it counts. Help us to take you at your word. Give us the courage to follow you when you call us. You give us everything we need to respond to your call. The real question is do we really believe you? Do we take you seriously? Or are you just too much to handle for us? Help us to see that we don’t get to decide this. Let us be thankful that you have not written us off. Instead, you fill us with an embracing love that is unconventional. Thank you. Amen.
